And Rollin, quick as she is, may not be used in the same leadoff capacity given that the Panthers' lineup, which routinely put up double-digit runs a year ago, is so potent.
"That's our general on the field and offensively," West coach Keith Lopati said. "She's developed a lot of power over the years. If it's not that, she's using her speed.
"She's the first actual triple threat I've seen in a long time," Lopati added about Rollin's speed, power and ability to hit for average.
Rollin's route to West High was not a straight line.
She decided to transfer to Hunter at the end of last school year, and that included her decision not to play softball. She attended Hunter for one term before the second transfer to West.
"I always felt like they were talented and I could bring something to their program," Rollin said about West, noting she played with some of the Panthers on club teams. "I felt they were an amazing group of girls who I always wanted to play with."
The reason Rollin is eligible to play right away for West, according to UHSAA officials, is because her father was hired as an assistant coach for the Panthers.
Lopati said that Fred Rollin already coached some of the West players, and he wanted to establish continuity between Rollin's coaching in the summer and the high school season.
"Her dad is the coach for the Firecrackers, which is a travel-ball team in Utah. They play a high level of softball," Lopati said. "Having Fred on our staff is huge because last year he had six of our girls on his team already."
Rollin said she's gotten blowback, especially on social media, about her moves.
"I'm here for academics and my dad's coaching here," Rollin said. "I've responded, just letting them know that, 'Hey, I'm doing what's best for me.'"
Rollin's bat significantly improves West's chances of securing the school's first softball championship, but this may be a one-and-done deal. That's because Rollin said she is trying to graduate in December of her senior season to head to Missouri early.
"I'm going over there to try to be a four-year starter, so I can train earlier," she said. "We'll see how it goes."
